No, we are a wildlife rehabilitation centre and do not offer this service.
Wild birds are an important part of the ecosystem. They help maintain sustainable population levels of their prey and predator species and, after death, provide food for scavengers and decomposers.
Many birds play an important role as plant pollinators or seed dispersers. For example, kererū are essential for the survival of forest ecosystems – they are the only birds in Aotearoa who can disperse the seeds of large-fruited native trees such as karaka.
Birds also play important cultural and social roles, are taonga for Māori and others, and bring joy to many people’s lives. They appear in literature, art, and mythology worldwide. Birdsong enriches the outdoors and bird-watching is one of the fastest-growing recreational activities.
Depending on the situation and species of bird, it may be appropriate to contact your local Council office for advice.
